Anyone run the LA raceway and CMS in Warrensburg tracks? Was curious what gears (modifieds) you run and if you can run the same gear at both tracks? Thanks for any help.

You'll need a 5.83 to a 6.20 at CMS.

I ran a 5.83 at LA also and was in the ballpark.

I run a 6.33 last sat at cms, but from 5.83-6.20 will fit most people. depends on how many rpm you want to turn.
LA is from as low as 5.29 to 5.83 or so.
What rpm did you turn with the 5.83?

I just picked up the car. Haven't been out to LA raceway yet, but have been to CMS. I believe the guy I purchased the car from said the car had 5:43s which sounds a little on the tall side. The car did feel like it was not accelerating like it should but hard to say since it was the first time out. LA seems to be a long 3/8 mile track. How many RPMs does those 5:83s turn on these tracks?

With the 5.83 at LA on a dryslick night I think i only turned around 7400. At CMS with the tacky track its been around 7800. On a normal night its usually around 7300-7400 with the 5.83. I have ran a 5.43 and a 5.67 at CMS as well but the 5.83 has worked the best for sure.
